Easton Wylder is baseball royalty. The game is his life. His passion. His everything.
So, when an injury threatens to end Easton’s season early, the team calls in renowned physical therapist, Doc Dalton, to oversee his recovery. Except it’s not Doc who greets Easton for his first session, but rather, his daughter, Scout. She may be feisty, athletic, defiant, and gorgeous, but Easton is left questioning whether she has what it takes to help him.
Scout Dalton’s out to prove a female can handle the pressure of running the physical therapy regimen of an MLB club. And that proof comes in the form of getting phenom Easton Wylder back on the field. But getting him healthy means being hands-on.
And with a man as irresistible as Easton, being hands-on can only lead to one thing, trouble. Because the more she touches him, the more she wants him, and she can’t want him. Not when it’s her job to maintain the club’s best interest, in regards to whether he’s ready to play.
But when sparks fly and fine lines are crossed, can they withstand the heat, or is one of them bound to get burned?
K. Bromberg hits a home run with The Player. As soon as I was done with the book my jaw hit the floor. Yes! I was floored away on how it ended. I am still in shock as I write this review. I completely did not see where the story was headed until the very last sentence! Oh I loved love loved The Player. This is a sports romance that is not like the others. You get a bit tired of sports romance because after awhile they all start to sound the same. The Player is incredible, sexy, and will make you laugh hard. The drama that unfolds with these characters will have you on the edge. These characters will stay near an dear to your heart.
Scout is my kind of girl. Personally I have a love for sports. I love being home and watching a good football, basketball, or baseball game. I love the rush you get when your team takes the win at the last second. That is what I find within Scout. She has a huge heart for the game. Her downside is that she has a lot to learn from and not be so afraid of love.
Easton is not your typical arrogant hot MVP. Oh he has his swagger and is a hot shot, but he has the heart that will burn you down to your soul. He had a tough life and it just gets tougher now that he is trying to make a come back from an injury. All things happen for a reason, and this was just fate intervening to bring Scout into his life.
These two have chemistry and love that blows it out of the park. They tried to fight their feelings, but the more they try to resist, the stronger the pull is. I love the fact that Easton has great moves off the field and behind close doors. Those scenes were scorching hot! I can not wait for book two coming out in the summer. Ladies and Gentlemen you will surely love this new sports romance novel from K. Bromberg! I am still in awe ❤
